Here are a couple of links to the on-line catalog of A.M. Leonard - a horticultural supplier that I mentioned during the workshop. The 2" poly tape is also available in 4 and 6" versions. The larger sizes may be handy for bridging missing pieces.

The hook knife is a folding pocket knife style. Definitely more expensive then a linoleum knofe but may have some advantages. I will keep an eye out for an example of a hoof cleaning knife that was mentioned as well.

Andy:

Thank you for providing a source on the tape. I just ordered some ($10 + $10 shipping, 2"x48'), and I suspect it will be at least 10 times better than what we have been using. I'll test it out and post results here.

Short term stabilization. The tape is claimed to have a 3 year rating with full sun. Beats duct tape (or worse) for temporary stabilization to meet the client's schedule/budget. Of course, there are those windows that have had all variety of items and substances applied to them for a yankee fix.....

Jade:

It's real good stuf for fixin' the bumper rust on yer pickup.

Just kidding.

At the workshop I showed clear tape as a quick, low cost, stabilization treatment for cracked glass. I've been using 3-mill clear acrylic tape with acrylic adhesive, but Andy knew about 6-mill polyelethene tape for plastic green house repairs.

Here are updated links to AM Leonard tape:

When testing stabilizing cracked panes with the VP-PPT tape I've had 3 years of good performance and still going strong.
